Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

-- Yesterday I identified the similarity between mid-October 2014 and yesterday. In both cases, there was a peak in new lows -- on each date about 450 lows. While the business media all of a sudden seemed to discover the narrowing of the market (and its potential dire market implications), I suggested that this observation might be too late -- as, at least last October that event was followed by a 12% market rise in five weeks.
Indeed, as noted earlier today, the Russell 2000 throw-up from levels shortly after the open, when the iShares Russell 2000 (IWM) slid to about $119.40, seems to have represented a capitulatory near-term low.

An Educated Guess Real Money Pro($)

The throw-up in the Russell 2000 just a few minutes ago might have marked a temporary market bottom.

The Bifurcated Market Real Money Pro($)

I heard someone in the business media earlier today dismiss the Russell 2000's weakness as noise.
Active traders should also keep in mind that the contract is bearish over the medium term.
The stock is at risk of extending its recent decline beneath late-March swing lows.
They've done well considering market had a slightly negative month.

Feeling Spry About SPY Shorts Real Money Pro($)

Back to the day's lows in the S&P after a huge early ramp. The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) has turned red and I am feeling more comfortable with today's shorts in SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) done at $208.05-$208.20. The market remains, to this observer, a short on rips. The major question to me is whether it is also a buy on dips. That is still unclear. Again, for emphasis, and as described in today's opener -- the action seems consistent with the notion of a broad topping process in the averages. I see no leadership beyond the banks. I recently put SPY and PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ) on my Best Ideas List. That is a strong market statement from me. Gold is stinking up the joint. Bond yields are moving back to the recent highs. Greece is still the word and still in a state of flux. The conclusion I get from watching Fox Business, Bloomberg and CNBC is that most are still buyers on dip and complacency reins.
And if you're looking at gold, it's still trapped in consolidation.
